Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My tutoring experience is rather limited. I have only tutored one student, and this was a classmate in a Roman History class during collge. The reason this student required tutoring is that he was visually impaired. Being completely unfamiliar with the material and unable to read the required readings quickly and easily, the professor asked me if I would assist him in absorbing the material. I was happy to help. Considering that he could barely see, the results, as I recall, were quite good.
As for a tutoring style, I don't think I have quite developed one, since I've only ever tutored one student. During our sessions, the student asked questions on topics and issues in the material that he had trouble grasping. I responded with as much detail and clarification as possible. I suppose, if I had to describe the interaction in terms of style, I would call it 'Conversational Feedback'. Since the student could barely see, visual aids were out of the question, leaving only verbal communication to be an option.
While tutoring for a History class constitutes my only experience, I do not think this would hamper my ability in tutoring for Latin or Greek. Being a Classics major, the focus of my studies were on the Classical Languages, and as such, if I were to say that I have a great passion in life, it would be for the Classical Languages. For this reason, despite my lack of actual experience in tutoring a student in Latin and Greek, I have great confidence in my ability to do well in it.
